My wife and I have Cingular phones (v180 and v551) and we have a dead spot
in the housing development around our house. I called and had my wife
switched to "blue" since they thought that might get better coverage, but it
just takes her from no signal to one bar (sometimes). They acknowledge that
seems to be a dead spot and the local sales people all know about it as well
(although they don't say anything about it until later). There is a tower
which they could use not far from us.

I could live with the increased coverage since I use my landline from home
anyway, but I am also on the Planning Commission for my city, and we are
approving more development in that area. I think it would be good business
for them to get coverage in this area, as well as good for the city
development, and wonder who I should contact about it. There is a tower
just sitting there for them to lease space on (unless they can't do it for
some reason).

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

If its a small dead spot, then it's north worth their investment to lease
space on a tower. In addition to the multiple directional antennas req'd,
there's expensive equipment, telco lines, battery backup and then of course,
the monthly lease.

They probably did the math and lose a few thousand dollars a month by losing
some community or spend over $1m equipment cost plus $5k/month lease to
serve a few folks.

Makes sense. I will have to test out how big of a dead spot it is and see
if it would be worth their while.
